  • Holiday Thanks

    Posted by District on 11/19/2020 3:00:00 PM

    From Dr. Bagwell:

    As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to the students of St. Mary Parish Schools for their fortitude in adapting to mask wearing, social distancing, and other steps designed to keep them healthy. Certainly, these first few months of the school year have presented many challenges as we weathered the pandemic and hurricane season, but our students have shown that they are resilient and able to adapt quickly to change. I also want to thank parents for their patience and understanding as the school system cautiously navigated through new procedures and state reopening phases to safely open schools and keep the community informed along the way.  

    With the guidance and support of an incredible teaching staff and administrator leadership, our students are moving forward academically and have shown that learning continues no matter the method or classroom location. I have every confidence that they will continue to show academic gains as the year progresses and am grateful for all the extra time and efforts our educators have made to sustain learning both on-campus and virtually.

    On behalf of the educational community of St. Mary Parish, I want to extend our wish for a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday. I urge you to continue to uphold mask wearing and social distancing measures during the holiday. We are grateful for the opportunity to educate St. Mary’s next generation, and we look forward to the return of our students on Monday, November 30.

    Happy Thanksgiving

  • Be Wary of Open Enrollment Scams

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 11/13/2019

    Two important deadlines are quickly approaching for adding or changing your health coverage if you use one of the following options: 

    • Medicare:  December 7
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA): December 15

    Gretchen Abraham from the FTC's Division of Consumer & Business Education has shared the following tips on the Federal Trade Commission's website to help you avoid being scammed:

    For Medicare:

    • There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer. 
    • You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
    • Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
    • Help with Medicare is available at or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at, where you can also enroll.
    • This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners.  Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information. 
    • After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
    • Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.  You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
